Smith & Singer

International Consignments

Consign in Australia, Sell Internationally

Smith & Singer has unparalleled worldwide experience in dealing in fine art and jewellery.  Our specialists' careers span global auction houses, private galleries and dealers, and Australian and international public institutions.  As a result, we are uniquely placed within the Australian auction market to advise our clients on the perfect strategy for selling their artworks and jewellery privately, or at auction, around the world.

For pieces best suited for international sale, Smith & Singer (formerly Sotheby's Australia), has long experience in brokering consignments with international auction houses in order to realise the greatest possible result for our clients.  Our specialists are internationally recognised and have developed close ties with colleagues around the world in order to gain the best possible arrangements for clients whose pieces would benefit from sale in markets outside Australia.
